What You'll Get
Laughter is the best medicine, though it tends to be the worst legal defense. Salute the healing art of comedy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two tickets to any Comedy Zone show and $30 toward American fare at Madisons On The Corner in Fort Mill (a $50 value). The Comedy Zone presents four shows every week—two on Friday nights and two on Saturday nights—as well as a weekly open-mic night on Thursdays. You must call to reserve your seat for the show.
Madisons On The Corner books top-tier standup talent from across the country for its Comedy Zone stage on the weekends, as well as for the open-mic night on Thursdays for amateur quipsters who dream of one day starring alongside Dixie Carter. Each weekend show cracks up audiences with a trifecta of comedians—the evening's emcee, a featured up-and-coming performer, and the headlining standup comic. The upcoming schedule includes this weekend's shows with veteran laugh-maker Shaun Jones, BET and HBO regular Tony Tone on February 25 and 26, and the high-energy comedic songwriting of Michael Mack on March 4 and 5. Recent shows have included the legendary Michael Winslow of Police Academy fame and country-music comedian Tim Wilson.
Prep your stomachs for hearty laughing with equally hearty entrees from Madisons On The Corner, which serves a menu of abundantly sized sandwiches, salads, and wraps. Muffle awkward giggle-snorts in selections such as the buffalo chicken sandwich, drizzled with your choice of sauce ($8.99), the provolone-adorned philly melt ($8.99), or the fried-shrimp-filled Madison wrap ($8.49). Classic entrees including rib-eye steak ($16.99) and beefy hamburgers ($7.99–$8.99) are also available. Convince a friend to pick up a Groupon to help them laugh for the first time since Henry Kissinger recorded a standup album.

About The Comedy Zone at Madison's On the Corner
Every weekend, The Comedy Zone puts on a three-act standup show, each headlined by nationally-touring comics often boasting credits from such programs as Last Comic Standing and Sirius XM Radio. On Thursday nights, the floor opens to a flurry of local up-and-comers, giving nascent comedians the chance to cut their teeth on a live audience and a microphone-shaped chew toy. Its partner restaurant and bar, Madison’s on the Corner, provides the show floor with a menu of drinks and pub grub such as steaks, burgers, and pasta.
